Check out John’s most recent amazing project! He went big! Rather than building another model-size remote-controlled boat, John hand built a gorgeous wooden kayak! Check out the pictures of his exceptional craftmanship on this work of art. It paddles beautifully!


  1. Thoughts from the Office

Ready, set, grow!

What a pleasure it is for me to work with professionals eager to learn new skills, expand knowledge, and build confidence – all of which assure long-term career success. Here’s a list of proven development resources that I recommend to people who boldly take charge of their future.

Toastmasters  –  A learn-by-doing organization in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a no-pressure atmosphere. Members meet weekly or bi-weekly to speak, evaluate others, and learn fundamental speaking protocols. I was a dedicated member for five years.

Soundview Executive Book Summaries – An online subscription provides monthly business book summaries and a variety of free webinars by well-known business authors and experts. Annual cost is less than $200.00. A valuable investment!

Dale Carnegie Training – Leadership, sales, people skills training offered in a variety of formats.

Fred Pryor Seminars – Courses cover a broad spectrum of development topics by professional instructors through live seminars and online. I’m a member of their Training Rewards program which provides unlimited annual access to both live and online materials.

TED Talks – Conceived in 1984, the original focus was Technology, Entertainment, Design. TED’s slogan is “ideas worth spreading.” Thousands of talks, each limited to 18 minutes or less, have been posted for free distribution over the past 25 years. Presenters have expanded to include business experts, scientists, educators, inventors, philosophers, musicians, religious leaders, philanthropists, and many others. An abundance of interesting and thought-provoking information.

Community leadership – Many Chamber of Commerce affiliates sponsor a leadership training program for emerging and existing leaders. The purpose is to develop community volunteer leadership by increasing participants’ community knowledge, civic network, and awareness of service opportunities. Ask your local Chamber if they have or can start a program similar to Leadership Charlotte.

Which of these will you begin this fall? I’d love to hear from you if you want to share your personal experiences with any of these great programs.


  1. Thoughts from Others

To laugh often and much;

To win the respect of intelligent people
and the affection of children;

To earn the appreciation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends;

To appreciate beauty;
To find the best in others;

To leave the world a bit better, whether by
a healthy child, a garden patch
or a redeemed social condition;

To know even one life has breathed
easier because you have lived;

This is to have succeeded.

– Ralph Waldo Emerson
